I had this pasta but in the form of lasagne when i went to my sister-in-law's place.I like the lasagne very much specially the sauce which she prepared for lasagne so i use the same sauce with different form of pasta.It is very quick to make also as there is no baking time .
- 2 cups pasta(any form of pasta)
- 5 cups water
- 1 cup capsicum(any colour capsicum)
- 1/2 cup onion (or spring onions)
- 1 tbsp chopped garlic
- 1/2 cup zuccini
- 1 cup tomato basil sauce ( Or Fresh Basil and Tomato Sauce Seperately )
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp chilli flakes
- salt to taste
- 1/4 cup grated cheese
- Cilantro(Coriander Leaves) for garnish
Take 5 cups water in a deep sauce pan and let it boil .
Add a little salt and oil to boiling water to prevent pasta to stick to each other
Let it boil for 30 sec then add pasta shells .
Let it cook till tender and drain the water and run under cold water some 1 minute then drain again and keep the pasta aside as cold water will help the pasta to cool down quickly and prevent stickiness.
cut onion ,capsicum,zuccini length wise 1/2 inch strips
Heat oil in pan and add onion,garlic and saute for 2 mins
Add capsicum ,zuccini and saute for 3 mins
Next add the sauce to the above and cook it till the sauce binds nicely with veggies(approx 3 mins)

Add the cooked pasta to the above sauce and stir till the pasta blends nicely with the sauce
Add the grated cheese to the above and mix it well.
